Early indications are promising
The service from pexuniverse was fantastic, the unit arrived approx 36 hours after ordering, in good condition. Opening the packaging, the only concern was that the wire for the control panel was not included (really?) requiring an added trip to the hardware store. Otherwise, installation was a breeze. The unit is installed in a summer camp setting, being used for up to 2 showers running simultaneously. Has not even struggled to keep up with the demand from a flow or temp rise point of view (ground water temp is a constant 42F). Will reserve the right to revisit the review after a couple of seasons, but if this unit performs as well as our Rheem or Palomo units, year after year, at the PexUniverse price, this will be a winner.
Does this unit come with the Internal Freeze-Protection System or does it have to be ordered separately?

All the "OS" (outdoor) Takagi series come with a built-in freeze protection. However, it only works when electricity is on. For more details, see page 35 of the manual under the "Literature" tab.
